In addition to a basic overview of BTA history tour audiences hear what wildlife has been seen lately, hotspots to look for resident birds, and where to enjoy the most sweeping, panoramic views of the Queen Creek riparian area. Guided walks along the 1.5-mile main trail include fun facts about Arboretum history while learning more about the Arboretum's plants, resident critters and geology. Event repeats October 27, November 24 and December 22.   8:30 am. 602-827-3000 or https://cals.arizona.edu/bta/events.html or https://www.facebook.com/btarboretum/
